Gabrielle Desmarais

A 2010 graduate of the École de joaillerie de Montréal, Gabrielle stands out for her artistic and aesthetic intent. In 2009, she participated in a workshop with Willemijn de Greef, in France; in 2010 enrolled in Le Labo, workshops animated by Noel Guyomarc’h; and in 2011 attended the Alchimia School, in Italy. The recipient of a number of awards and grants, Gabrielle has participated in numerous national and international exhibitions, including Black & White and Attachments, organized by Barbara Cohen, at Circle Craft Gallery, Vancouver, in 2015; the 2014 SIERAAD International Jewellery Art Fair, Amsterdam, the Netherlands; Blickfang, Zurich, Germany; and in 2013, Dialogue, at Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h and the Harbourfront Centre, Toronto; and Joya Barcelona, Spain. Following Bijoux contemporains hors du commun, an exhibition curated by Diane Charbonneau, decorative arts curator, and Noel Guyomarc’h, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts acquired one of her works. Ce qui n’est pas là, a joint exhibition with Anne-Marie Rébillard, at Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h in 2013, led to an article in Metalsmith magazine and an interview with Missy Graff for Art Jewelry Forum.
